Generate Form 8863 Education Credits

Level 1
Hello, I'm trying to proforma my new clients return from 2018. I want to know how to override two line items:

1. Form1040 Line 12 to equal $333 and
2. Form 1040 line 17 to equal $400.

When I override Form 8863 to be $400, the program forces Form 1040 Line 12 to equal $400 instead of the $333 the taxpayers return shows.

Anyone deal with this beforehand? Thanks!

Generally overrides are troublesome. In this case there are many other factors at play. Rather than override, try more input to get both figures, assuming both are correct.
